Camille and Mark Awad from Winding Road Distillery are about to release their first single malt hinterland whiskey. 

Winding Road Distillery is based in Tintenbar, and early next week they are due to release their first single malt whiskey, initially to members of their Distillers Circle group. If you’re interested, have a look at their website.

Through that, consumers can identify with the brands, knowing their patronage supports local families and the community.’
